Bali is one of the most prominent, evocative tourist attractions in the whole Indonesian archipelago. The atmosphere is mystic, as you can smell the aroma of incense and clove oil. The roads are littered with sideway cafes, and vendors sell exotic flowers. Gamelan music mixes with honks of the cars. Gamelan is a traditional Javanese music consisting of flutes, xylophones, metallophones, and other percussive instruments. Despite the chaos and cacophony, the city has its own charm; the scenic panorama spellbound every traveler. You can go for a surf, trek through the lonely and wonderful trail through misty cascade to volcano top, or ride through beautiful terrain through luxuriant countryside bristling paddy fields.
Pura Tanah Lot
This historic temple is situated twenty kilometers northwest of Kuta. The temple is on a rock island surrounded by roaring waves, amplifying the grandness and beauties of nature. Local people regard this temple as one of the most sacred sea temples. Pura Besakih is the largest and holiest Hindu temple in Bali. Many tourists and natives gather in the shrine arena to watch the mesmerizing sunset in the evening. You will find many stalls on the premises selling souvenirs; if you want, you can buy some for your loved ones.
In the 16th century, this temple was constructed. A priest named Nirartha spent a night on the hilltop of this isle in meditation and asked the local fisherman to build a temple. The entry of foreigners is restricted in the temple, but you can stroll in the surrounding area at low tide. Take as many snaps of this stunning, magnificent terrain; it is like an isle isolated from the urban world meditating in silence.
After offerings reverence in various shrines, sit in a clifftop cafe to refresh your body, mind, and soul. The view from these hilltop cafes is marvelous and magnificent. You can visit Batu Bolong, another sea temple sitting on a rock flange with a battered ramp. The path from Pura Tanah Lot to Batu Bolong is lined up with various tropical trees and flowers.
The hotels in Bali are spacious, clean, and well maintained. Many hotels have attached balconies from where you can enjoy the sea. The patio is surrounded by palm trees, and the contour fade in the sapphire horizon. The rooms are airy, well decorated, and offer a superb view. There are many eateries around the corner, offering fabulous, delicious cuisine. Many hotels offer complimentary car through from the airport.
At the crack of dawn, many visitors trek to the 1,700-meter pinnacle of Mount Batur; from the cliff top, you will watch the golden sun slowly rise through the mist overflowing mountains, lush environs, and the caldera far below. A caldera is a volcanic crater resulting from the falling of a volcano. The hike to reach the peak takes around two to three hours. On a clear, cloud-free day, the view is spectacular, as you have a sweeping sight extending to surrounding mountains and Lake Batur. This lake is the chief source of irrigation for the area.
